Doing Your Part

Science Hill Christian Church in Science Hill, Kentucky, suffered a devastating fire several years ago. Their church building was declared a total loss, and they had to erect a new structure.

The church decided to use their own people as much as possible in the building process. Even young children were helping to carry pieces of steel that would be placed in the concrete foundation. As one small boy handed a piece of steel to his father, he remarked, “We’re building a church, aren’t we, Daddy?”

Indeed they were!

Let’s remember that Jesus uses many different kinds of people to build his church. We each bring our unique talents, abilities and passions to be used to bring about the growth of the kingdom.

“From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”—Ephesians 4:16.

Enjoy doing your part today!
